Govt. role in Health Reform & Electronic Health Data

This important video from TEDMED was uploaded yesterday and is a Must See, especially for health practitioners. Mostashari, National Coordinator for Health IT at the DHHS, and Chopra, the U.S. CTO, talk about how open access to electronic health data can reform physician pay and patient care. Infrastructure and Rules-of-the-Road are two of the keys to encouraging innovation. Most critical is belief in the potential of health reform.

While the “over-the-top” enthusiasm of these guys may be a put-off for some of you, the message is compelling and inspiring.
